Mike Huckabee has won the 18 delegates up for grabs at today's GOP presidential candidate selection convention in Charleston, on the convention's second ballot. Romney had a lead over Huckabee on the first ballot, but McCain supporters (McCain was well back in third) threw their support to Huckabee in the second round giving him a majority of the delegates. Both Romney and Huckabee personally appeared at the convention this morning.
Update: Looks like McCain sent word to his backers in West Virginia to vote for Huckabee on the second ballot, thus denying Romney a victory here. Romney, as is his wont, is carping about that.
Forgive me for saying this, Romney-backers, but if McCain's going to win the nomination I hope he puts it away today: I'm growing to loath Mitt more and more with each statement he makes.
Update II: Here's an informative piece about the resources Romney put into the state and his campaign's expectations of a victory.
(And, incidentally, the piece starts off with a well-deserved shot at the Charleston Civic Center.)
Update III: The great Richelieu chimes in: "I'm shocked, shocked to see Politics in West Virginia!"
